Was great experience to see the production line in such close proximity. A group of our friends could not make it on time due to traffic, but the VW associates were great enough to accompany them to us during the tour. Was nice to know that it was used to be assembly line for their premium offering VW phaeton

Perfectly organized from the on-site parking lot with e-charging stations - explanation of the individual processes right up to the end. I thought it was a shame that it was not possible to buy a book (as a gift - not everyone has a PC) through the Transparent Factory! Maybe there are reasons not to offer it!

This is a tour for everyone! I’m no car mad person, they just get me from A to B but I really enjoyed this tour. Modern, exciting innovation looking forward in time. Seeing the cars put together so closely was awesome. So glad this tour was suggested to us and I went with my husband.
